I was a teenager when celebrities like Tyra Banks, Dennis Rodman and the cast of Friends started posing with milk mustaches in print ads and the tagline “Got Milk?” became a cultural catchphrase.Two decades later, that glossy Goodby Silverstein & Partners campaign is retired, but I still associate milk with greatness.And I didn’t go a day without splashing it in my coffee until recently.Oatly caught my attention when the barista at my Brooklyn coffee shop set a carton of it on the counter beside my piping hot Americano and nodded a silent but unmistakable endorsement.Next, it popped up on my go-to food-delivery app, and the carton’s funky font and design hooked me.Now oat milk is a staple in my family’s diet.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake, one of the biggest stars of E3 2019, will still be released in multiple parts, but even Square Enix itself does not know how many episodes it will take to tell the game’s full story.Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase said at E3 2019 that the massive content of the game, which has a release date of March 3, 2020, will require two Blu-ray discs.However, the initial release will still not cover the entirety of the original Final Fantasy VII.The first release of the RPG will only contain the part of the story in Midgar, but it will be a “fully standalone gaming experience,” according to Kitase.He said that before Square Enix started working on the project, the team knew that doing the whole story will require a large amount of content.This was reinforced when they started planning out the plot for the first episode of the Final Fantasy VII Remake.
This is what we saw this past week with Google’s acquisition of Looker for $2.6 billion, followed by Salesforce’s $15.7 billion acquisition of Tableau.Data’s center of gravity is now in the cloudThe concept of data gravity is not a new one.McCrory’s point is that as data accumulates, it becomes harder and harder to move.Therefore, the environments that build up the most data will naturally attract services and applications that use the underlying information.Data has been shifting to the cloud over the past few years whether in the form of cloud applications like Salesforce.com or cloud computing platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.
As far as Father's Day gifts go, Google's Doodle tribute to dads is no neck tie, but it fits the bill -- so to speak.On the day dozens of countries around the world celebrate one of the figures in our lives who traditionally prepare us for life outside the nest, Google has given us a dutiful duck dad Doodle.The animated Doodle gives us a glimpse of just some of the daily parenting responsibilities, including educating his young charges, lifting us up and generally keeping his ducks in a row.The celebration of fatherhood traces its roots back to 14th century Europe, but the first observance in the US wasn't held until the early 20th century, as a compliment to Mother's Day.Inaugurated the same year that we established an official day to celebrate moms, the first Father's Day in the US was held in West Virginia in 1908.For almost as long as Google has been around, it's livened up its barebones search page with artwork that draws attention to notable people, events, holidays and anniversaries.
It's been a chaotic year for Huawei so far, but in the midst of uncertainty over the company's future, the first images of what could be Huawei's next flagship phone have made their way out onto the web.These renders of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro come from Chinese site IT Home so we can't guarantee their legitimacy, but they look like they could be genuine images of the phone that's expected to launch later this year.Like its predecessor the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the handset apparently features a rectangular panel to house the camera lenses – only this time there are four of them rather than three.Around the front of the Mate 30 Pro we've got some very thin bezels and a hole-punch notch with a dual-lens front-facing camera in it.Black, red and blue are the colors shown off in these images.Again, it's worth taking these images with a pinch of salt.

Lots of people dream of suiting up like Iron Man and shooting to the skies.For Savage Builds, his new eight-part series focused on extreme engineering, Savage recruited a team from the science-focused Colorado School of Mines to build him an Iron Man suit made largely from 3D-printed titanium.The idea was to power it with a jetpack from Gravity Industries, run by Savage's buddy, UK inventor Richard Browning."It sounds like hyperbole, but I swear… if Tony Stark was not fictional and he was building an Iron Man suit right now, this is precisely how he would do it and this is the exact technology he'd be using," Savage told a CNET camera crew that spent two days with him as he attempted to learn to fly in an airplane hangar east of San Francisco.On Friday's premiere episode of Savage Builds, Savage puts on the shiny silver contraption but doesn't feel comfortable enough (yet) to wear it and test the jetpack at the same time.Browning does, however, and manages to hover about 15 feet (4.5 meters) above the ground.
But there are also plenty of less-expensive options for about half the price or less.Here are the best cheap smartphones you can buy.While the priciest version of Apple's newest iPhone would have started at $770 in 2016, today's top-of-the-line model begins at $1,100.Android alternatives aren't much cheaper if you're looking at flagship smartphones from companies like Samsung, LG, and Google.Samsung's Galaxy S10 started at $900 when it debuted, for example, while Google's Pixel 3 was priced at $800 at launch.If you don't mind sacrificing certain features and opting for an older model, there are several noteworthy options that will only cost about half the price of the $1,000 iPhone XS, or even less.
We're four years into the existence of live TV streaming as an option for cable TV cord cutters, and it feels like we're entering the awkward teen phase.While the technology is generally more stable now than ever, the pricing model is still working itself out.Most services are constantly ratcheting up their prices, including YouTube TV's recent jump from $40 to $50 per month.YouTube TV is definitely one of the best live TV streaming experiences you can buy.And its channel selection is top-notch, including numerous cable stables and coverage of all four local networks (ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC) in most markets nationwide (note that CBS is the parent company of CNET and Showtime).Given the $50 price tag, it may not actually save you much money over cable TV.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans ranks at the top of nearly every motorsport enthusiast's yearly watch list -- as it should -- but if you're in the US, streaming the race is typically a bit of a challenge.In the past, it meant that you'd have to hop between several services depending on the time of day.But this year, things are quite a bit simpler, and that's awesome.Here's the good news: MotorTrend TV is streaming Le Mans in its entirety, and you can watch it via your cable provider or, if you're a cord-cutter, via MotorTrendOnDemand.com or through the MotorTrend app.If you're not already signed up, you get a 14-day free trial, and after that it's $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year to subscribe.Live, flag-to-flag coverage has already started as you read this, even though the big race itself won't get underway until 9am EST (6am PST).
Earlier this week, Dell dropped the price of Bose’s QuietComfort 35 II noise-canceling wireless headphones, giving Bose fans a chance to save some dough.But they’ve also dropped the price on a great alternative as well, which we’ll talk more about later.They deliver all the full rich sound you’d expect from Bose, along with some of the best noise-canceling we’ve seen.The headphone cups fit snugly but not uncomfortably against the ear, and active noise-canceling (ANC) technology continuously adjusts the level of noise-canceling based on ambient noise to ensure all you hear is your music.Bluetooth technology is of course included, and they’re fully compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple’s Siri.You can switch through these with just a push of the button, so you’re not limited to using just one.

The iOS 13 developer's beta may have revealed a major clue about a new feature coming to the 2019 iPhones, and another long-time iPhone feature could be on the chopping block.2019 iPhone lineup may switch to USB-CWWDC 2019 may be over, but it's left behind a trail of clues that hint at what Apple is planning for its next batch of product announcements.At first glance it just looks like an image of a Mac and the top end of a cable -- but that's no Lightning cable.The existing iPhone recovery mode image clearly shows a Lightning cable tip, while the one in the beta looks more like a USB-C tip as pointed out by Forbes.The more likely possibility is that the image refers to the USB-C end of a USB-C-to-Llightning cable going in to the Mac.
You have more choices than ever for traveling from one destination to another, and thanks to modern technology, mass transportation is the safest it's ever been.Despite this, your chances of dying while traveling in some type of vehicle — be it a boat, train, or a car — remains a nonzero probability.According to 2017 data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics and the National Safety Council, the most-recent data available from the agencies, there were 37,133 highway deaths, 831 railroad deaths, and 658 people who died in recreational boating incidents.Mass transportation has come a long way since the days of the horse and buggy.Combined with passive safety features like airbags, these are all designed to help prevent crashes, or reduce the likelihood of injury in a collision.Read more: The 10 nastiest cruise ships of all time
Not so long ago, companies that cracked personal devices on behalf of governments did so in secret, closely guarding even the descriptions of their capabilities.Now, it seems, they proudly tweet about their updated abilities to hack into new iPhones, like a videogame firm offering an expansion pack.In marketing that update, it says that the tool can now unlock any iOS device cops can lay their hands on, including those running iOS 12.3, released just a month ago.Cellebrite claims UFED Premium can extract files from many recent Android phones as well, including the Samsung Galaxy S9.The move signals not only another step in the cat and mouse game between smartphone makers and the government-sponsored firms that seek to defeat their security, but also a more unabashedly public phase of that security face-off.An exclusive solution for law enforcement to unlock and extract data from all iOS and high-end Android devices," the company wrote on its Twitter feed for the UFED product.
Cable-company spending on network equipment is dropping as major providers like Comcast and Charter finish up their nationwide DOCSIS 3.1 rollouts.Equipment vendors that sell to cable companies such as Arris/CommScope and Casa Systems are reporting drops in cable-related revenue.Light Reading detailed the situation this week:Total cable access network-related revenues plummeted 38 percent in Q1 2019, to $275 million, versus the year-ago period, driven by a "strong slowdown" on capacity purchases by MSOs and an ongoing delay in deployments of new distributed access architectures, according to new data from Dell'Oro.Cable companies will certainly continue investing in their networks and customer equipment, but cable-company suppliers are reporting spending declines."[T]he recent, significant declines in capital spending by certain cable providers is having a pronounced impact on Arris," CommScope's first-quarter earnings announcement said, referring to its subsidiary that sells DOCSIS 3.1 equipment and other network gear.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced that it will invest $32 million over the next four years to accelerate the design of new materials through use of supercomputers.Seven projects will be supported, three led by teams at DOE National Laboratories and four by Universities.The teams are led by Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) as well as the University of Illinois, the Pennsylvania State University, the University of Texas and the University of Southern California.These projects will develop widely applicable open source software utilizing DOE's current leadership class and future exascale computing facilities.The goal is to provide the software platforms and data for the design of new functional materials with a broad range of applications, including alternative and renewable energy, electronics, data storage and materials for quantum information science.The new awards are part of DOE's Computational Materials Sciences (CMS) program, begun in 2015 to reflect the enormous recent growth in computing power and the increasing capability of high-performance computers to model and simulate the behavior of matter at the atomic and molecular scales.
